10 Actresses Who Could Be the Next Jennifer Lawrence

by: on | in Celebrities | 11 Comments


The Hollywood "It Girl" is a concept that has been around for generations, and it's pretty safe to assume Jennifer Lawrence more than fills that role. Now, OBVIOUSLY the Oscar winner isn't going anywhere any time soon, but there are plenty of other eager actresses who would love to be crowned with that "It Girl" title.

As we mentioned, Jen can never be replaced, but there's always room for more cool, down-to-earth stars, isn't there? We rounded up 10 actresses who are not only super talented but seem like we could be BFFs with them, too. Check out our picks below!

Is there anyone on this list YOU'D like to be besties with? Sound off in the comments!

1. Shailene Woodley

This is a pretty obvious one. Shai is about to star in Divergent which has been pegged as the next Hunger Games. However, Shailene is known for being quite the hippie and even makes her own toothpaste! That's kind of amazing, no?


2. Brie Larson

Much like J-Law, Brie has been starting in lots of indies lately. The best known one is probably Short Term 12 which is getting some serious Oscar buzz. Fun fact, Brie starred in 21 Jump Street in a role that Jen almost played!


3. Allison Williams

Allison stars as the uber neurotic Marnie on the hit HBO show Girls but IRL, she's super cool. Her dad is news anchor Brian Williams who is known for his funny side, and it's clear to see that runs in the family.


4. Britt Robertson

Britt is an adorable (and talented!) down to earth actress who is about to star in a top secret movie with George Clooney. Um, NBD. Also, she's got the adorable BF thing down since she's dating Dylan O'Brien



5. Elizabeth Olsen

Similar to Jen (and Brie for that matter) Elizabeth has started out doing low budget (but critically acclaimed) movies. However, we have a feeling things are about to change for Mary Kate and Ashley's little sis as she's been cast in the upcoming sequel for The Avengers. Oh, and it helps that she's super cool IRL.


6. Kat Dennings

Kat currently stars on the hit CBS comedy 2 Broke Girls and is known for her outspoken ways. Not to mention she's super confident with her curvy bod -- just like Jen!


7. Shannon Woodward

Shannon is BFFs with Katy Perry, so you KNOW she's got to have an awesome personality. Also, she stars on FOX's sleeper hit Raising Hope so you know her comedic chops are great.


8. Lyndsy Fonseca

You might recognize Lyndsy as "the daughter" on How I Met Your Mother but she's proved her comedic skills in Hot Tub Time Machine and her butt-kicking skills in the CW show Nikita.


9. Juno Temple

Juno is another indie darling who just might have what it takes to make it with bigger box office releases.


10. Holland Roden

This Teen Wolf star is sassy on screen, but proved she's not too much of a girly girl by dressing up as Tobias Funke from Arrested Development for Halloween!

    Personalities,too.ALSO Divergent isn’t the next Hunger Games,They are 2
    Very different stories.Please just STOP COMPARING,Ok?

  • Angelina

    Why are you constantly comparing people to other people? You tell us to embrace ourselves but yet here you are comparing? Why should there be “the next Jeniffer Lawrence” Let these women play out their own lives & stop comparing.

    Oh & I’m well aware this will never make it into the comments sections because you guys filter this, but I hope you see this and realize you are part of the problem.

  • Sunny

    So I guess the next Hollywood “It” Girl can’t be a young woman of color? And I completely agree, that the 10 actresses listed above are very talented. But why is it that non-white actress can’t and don’t receive that same type of recognition?

    • Lauren

      THANK YOU. I was thinking the same thing.
